A Tribute To Dan

Sad news...last night my husband and I found out that the night before, a family friend, Dan W. has passed away...he was in failing health for at least a year, but now he is in heaven with no more suffering...Prayers need to rise up for his surviving wife, Coni...They have been married for over 50 years. Dan was "Santa Claus" during all those Christmases when my husband was a child. He had a jovial laugh, funny personality, and he loved to drink, eat, and be merry...I had the pleasure of knowing him for several years, and it's such a loss here on earth without him...

A Little Visitor...

I was in my kitchen making lunch, and I saw a little squirrel hanging out on my balcony! He decided to pose for me in this picture!

New Hair Do!!!!

I got my hair done, something very dramatic, not the usual me, but I wanted to change myself, and here it is!


I stop to snap a picture of some beautiful tulips at the tulip festival in a nearby little town not far away from where I live...

My Mother, My Friend

The best looking mother of the bride ever! there's me and my mom June 6, 2008 on my wedding day...

Mom, material gifts may be fun to get on birthdays, but words are the most precious gifts of all...I love you mom, you are my angel, my warrior, my family, my friend, my inspiration, my role model, and my hero. You are what they would describe as the true definition of "mother" in the love me, you sacrifice for me, you hurt for me, you know every wound, every memory, every strength, and weakness...we may have had our mother daughter battles, and our mother daughter triumphs. as the years go by, I can see us only becoming closer and closer, I understand why you did what you did raising me, and I only hope that I can be even half the mother you are with my own children someday. It's not just birthdays and mothers days, I recognize this every day of my life...I love you mommy, and I hope today is a lovely day for you, of course I will give you a call, and convey my wishes...HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

Happy Birthday Mom!!!

Today is my mom's birthday, and I made a special etsy tribute to her...the pillow shown here is called "The Jenny Flower Pillow" and I named it after her due to her birthday, and of course I made this pillow on her birthday...hope your day is special, mom! I can't wait to give you our birthday presents on Easter!
